06 V6 mustang gas mielage

I am thinking about getting an 06 Mustang V6 with a 5 speed. The sticker says it will get 28 on the Hwy. Can anybody tell me what they are actually getting?

Re: 06 V6 mustang gas mielage

from my experience with an 01 v6 I managed around 23-24mpg 50/50 driving normally. I am not sure how much better the 05+ mustangs do but I would expect it to be around 22mpg-24mpg normal driving 50/50 mix.

Re: 06 V6 mustang gas mielage

Should be no problem at all. I got 26 mpg on average, driving on a mostly interstate / little highway mix from Alabama to Texas.

EDIT: Forgot to add, that's in a GT (also 5 speed). Surely the V6 could do a couple better.

I haven't really checked it, and I haven't driven much on the highway, short 20-30 mi trips, but its looking to be around a little over 20 mixed. I do like to put my foot in it though.

Re: 06 V6 mustang gas mielage

I can get at the very least 19 mpg when I am just doing city driving (I have a 5spd). Mostly with AC, but sometimes I dont use it depending on the weather. On average though I get about 22 mpg with a little highway driving mixed in.
